    AntiVirus Plus download problem.

      I just purchased AntiVirus Plus.  I am trying to install it but get a popup saying:


      Download Cannot Continue


      Your McAfee software download cannot continue because either there's a problem with your internet connection ot the McAfee download server is unavailable. To fix this, make sure you PC is connected to the internet or wait for a few moments for the server to become available, then try again.


      My computer is connected to the internet.

      I have waited and waited and tried and tried again.  Keep getting the same message. Please help

          Hi kevcosta,


          I faced the same issue but solved the problem. Here the work around,


          1. Choose Custom Install

          2. Uncheck the site advisory

          3. Proceed with the installation

          4 After successful installation you will be able to install site advisory via the main menu, Web and E-mail Protection.

            I have had the same problem, I was able to download the file DMSetup.exe but once I run it I get the same message:  "problem with your internet connection or the McAfee download server is unavailable".  I don't have the option of a custom install because the program hasn't been downloaded.
